Ah another amazing novel. One of my favorite quotes ever comes from that book:
“When adults say, “Teenagers think they are invincible” with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don’t know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.”
have you read perks of being a wallflower? if not u should
I sure have, about 5 times. Somehow it always seems to apply to my life…. I considered getting quotations from it as tattoos, but I have other things that I want done more than that. Definitely one of my all time favorite books.
"So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be."
“It really came up in passing conversation, just being like ‘I’m proud of you.’ But, you know, not even necessarily that a woman has to go and achieve grandiose things to be proud. It’s just like, I’m proud of you for trying. You know, it’s hard to be a woman out here these days, especially to be pretty. And especially, you know, to be smart and to want something for yourself. So I’m just proud of you. Whether it’s Nicki or whether its any girl that I’ve ever known in my life thats doing well for herself.”—DRAKE X MAKE ME PROUD (via fuckyeahdraaake)
